The Official Selection film programme at the Scottish Mental Health Arts Festival takes place from 3-6 May 2019 in Glasgow. Tickets to all events at our two core venues, CCA: Centre for Contemporary Arts and Flourish House are either FREE or priced on a Pay What You Can basis from £0 to £8 (in £2 increments).
Please read the guidance below and you can find our full programme here.
In order to make the Scottish Mental Health Arts Festival accessible to those on a low income, we use a sliding scale ticket price of £0-£8 for our events. You can choose what you pay based on your circumstances – you won’t be asked for any proof / ID, we just ask that you are honest! And, if you have a free ticket and can no longer use it, please cancel your order or let us know so that it can be used by someone else. Below is a rough guide to help you decide what you can afford to pay:
